Missing My Hammy

Its been a week since my cat Hammy passed away.  each day it gets better  and better, I know its part of  life that we lose people and pets we love but its so hard to come to term with.  It has been a good experience for my youngest son who is 6 years old to process death.  He has lost grandparents in the past but he was too young to understand what death really is.  We had Hammy for almost 13 years, in August he would have been 13, he leaves behind his step brother cat Tora who is still a little lost without him but I'm sure he too will survive.  Maybe one day I will be able to get a kitten for Tora to nurture so he can be happy again. I will miss Hammy forever and he will never be replaced by any other kitty no matter how cute they are.

Shelf Storage Basket

Just finished this today! its Shelf Storage Basket by Suzanne Moore She has a free pattern on her site.  You can also get all the supply you need from her.  Good prices and very friendly service.  Here is a link to the free pattern by Suzanne click here

 these has leather handles
 and a hard wood strip  for inner rim which you can also get it from her and you also add some flat oval to give it more support

 The pattern called for 7MM flat to lash but it seemed too large to fit, I used 3/16 instead.

Here is a shot with clothes pin in front to give you a idea how large it is.
